Abstract

Eine Vorrichtung dient zur Aufbereitung eines Kraftstoff-Kühlmittel-Gemisches in einem Brennstoffzellensystem. An apparatus used for the preparation of a fuel-refrigerant mixture in a fuel cell system. Bei dem Brennstoffzellensystem handelt es sich dabei insbesondere um ein Direkt-Methanol-Brennstoffzellensystem. In the fuel cell system is in particular a direct methanol fuel cell system. Das Kraftstoff-Kühlmittel-Gemisch zirkuliert in einem Kreislaufsystem (5), welches eine Gemischfördereinrichtung (7), einen Anodenraum (2) einer Brennstoffzelle (1) und einen Ionentauscher (11) aufweist. The fuel-refrigerant mixture circulated in a circulation system (5) comprising a mixture conveyor (7), an anode space (2) a fuel cell (1) and an ion exchanger (11). Weiterhin wird Kraftstoff über eine Leitung aus einem Tank (21) in das Kreislaufsystem geführt. Furthermore, fuel via a conduit from a tank (21) is guided into the circulatory system. In dieser Leitung ist ein Anionen- und Kationentauscher (23) angeordnet. In this line, a anion and cation exchanger (23) is arranged. Zusätzlich ist im Kreislaufsystem noch ein Kationentauscher (11) angeordnet. In addition, in the circulatory system, a cation exchanger (11) is also arranged.
